After 22-27 this morning highs today reached 46-54 with extremely low dew points resulting in realtive humidity levels down to 18%.
The 24 or less lows are normal in our north half & a week earlier than normal at climate sites from the Covington to Attica to Lafayette to Frankfort corridor.
Warm, windy, dry weather will dominate through next Monday! Highs Election Day will run 63-70, followed by 69-74 Wednesday, 67-73 Thursday, then 72-76 over the viewing area Friday.
Other than more in the way of cloudiness with time Wednesday to Wednesday night (thickest) & Thursday, each day looks mostly sunny to sunny & breezy to windy with LOW humidity.
MARGINAL to SLIGHT RISK parameters show up in the area Tuesday evening-night as cold front moves in. Looks like potential line of storms with band of stratified rain behind it.
Meanwhile, what may become Theta may move into the Gulf of Mexico & then affect Florida. It may be a hurricane or at least on the cusp of a hurricane at landfall.
Category 4 Hurricane Eta is about to make landfall in northern Nicaragua to Honduras. It should sit over those counties with disastrous wind damage & massive flooding. Thoughts are that it will diminish & then either its circulation or a new system will form & that would become Theta.
Iota may also form in the Caribbean.
After brief cool-down to 50s, we should warm back up to 60s & 70s with storms possible around November 14-15.
It appears that our first lows of 15-20 will not occur until on or after November 25.

The first half of December look like this. Above normal temperatures will dominate. We may even find a near/record high or two or record high low temperature or two.
Precipitation looks above normal for the first half of December. We look wetter than normal. A severe weather episode is possible in the first half of December.
December overall looks like this. Unusually warm weather may dominate the eastern & southeastern U.S.
It looks very cold & snowy in the Northwest & Northern Rockies to even the Northern Plains.
December looks wet overall. A couple rounds of severe weather are possible. Snowfall currently looks below normal.
Snowfall in the Northwest, Northern Rockies & Northern Plains looks above normal.
Below normal precipitation will dominate southern California to Oklahoma, Texas, then over the Deep South to the Carolinas & southeastern Virginia.
Thoughts are that January will be the coldest month of the winter, but it will still be above normal. However, it won't be nearly to the degree of December. January also looks like the snowiest month of the winter. However, it may only amount to a few snows that average out to normal.
February-March features below normal snowfall right not, but it definitely looks wetter & warmer than normal.
There continues to be elevated risk of flash to river flooding, as well as cool-season severe weather December-March.
Some record high temperatures are possible in any of these months.
